Boardwalk Trail: Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The 11,000-acre Corkscrew Swamp, owned and operated by the National Audubon Society, protects the world’s largest remaining subtropical old-growth bald cypress forest. This northern tip of the Big Cypress Swamp contains towering bald cypress more than 130 feet high and as much as 700 years old; these are some of the oldest trees in eastern North America.

The Audubon Society began protecting the swamp’s great egrets and wood storks from plumage hunters back in 1912. But it wasn’t until 1954 that society members began purchasing land to create the preserve. Their actions were timely. Although this was an isolated region back then, development encircles Corkscrew Swamp today. The 2.25-mile boardwalk at Corkscrew Swamp takes you through the world’s largest remaining subtropical old-growth bald cypress forest."
